Just last week a leaked Arcee test shot reminded me immediately of this Z-Bots figure, and then I realized I never wrote the review. Let's fix that and look at Buzzsaw. It's black with pink and a gorgeous metallic blue, making it a really striking color scheme I never thought I'd see again - so clearly, Hasbro has good taste in their colorist mines. The little guy is tiny - not even 2-inches tall - but has a pretty decent amount of paint and moving parts for a 1990s kid meal toy.
What makes this figure really sizzle is a color scheme that clearly makes a mark - a metallic blue energy ring on an arm-mounted buzzsaw is tough to forget, and the bright pink torso will sear itself into your memory. A metallic blue visor on the head doesn't add a lot of personality to its face, but the silver highlights on the back of the figure and the ankles just add to the design. You may not even notice that they're there, but it's a nice bonus.
Articulation is similar to the others, as the arms are a single connected piece. If you move the arm, the saw rotates too. The legs don't seem to be connected as such, but if you move one leg too far the other one starts to go too. He stands well, sits just fine, and is generally a good desk toy.
This is one of those things I assume never hit the nostalgia button for anybody and as such, I just like it as a weird thing I got for free for dinner one night. It's not impressive, but it's a neat paint job that I don't think I've seen emulated until now. You don't need this toy, but if you want a little sidekick for that new Arcee this may be a good one. I think he'll hang out on my desk until at least Arcee shows up in whatever form it is, because this is a heck of a cool paint job. We really need more pink and black on toys.
